The beautiful home that was ready for us though reved them up and by a little after noon that day the truck was unloaded and we were working our way through boxes! Chris' daughter T and her husband S flew up to help unpack and were a great addition to our crew along with MG and her hubby and my hubby's brother - L!! We couldn't have done it all without them!!
When we packed the truck in SoCal - we had more stuff than we realized and there wasn't room for the couch and loveseat in the truck - along with a few other items. We were able to find homes for everything real quick, and got the truck closed. That meant however, that we needed to buy new couches as soon as we got here instead of after a few months as we had planned. We all went to a local huge furniture store. Since hubby was chomping at the bit for his "big screen" this was as good a time as any! The girls went looking at couches and the boys went to electronics side! We came away with 2 couches, and leather chair and ottoman, an entertainment unit and a 52" flat screen tv!! A wonderful time was had by all!! Especially when we were the only ones who had to flip out the visa card! HA!! It was all delivered the
following week and we love it all!!
We had a lovely July 4th celebration in MG's back yard with Beth and Karen and all the kids, and all our moving buddies. Chris and Ron left Saturday morning to fly home, L took off with his truck on Sunday morning and Mom stayed for another week to help me unpack!! She is an amazing lady - at 84, she works circles around all of us! Her goal was to be able to get my car into the garage before she left. Well, we got close, but it took me another 2 weeks to actually be able to actually close the garage door behind it!
